Eight Top Brain Foods


Two Time USA Memory Champion and memory training expert and memory keynote Ron White shares his thoughts on brain foods to increase your memory capacity. The American diet does not exactly help in boosting your brain capacity or how to remember. In fact, it does just the opposite by slowing down the body, adding increased weight, and keeping your mind sluggish. A poor diet not only affects your body, but your mind.

Learning Language Through Imagery


Ron White the US National Memory Champion teaches keys to memory. In this article we will get into how your senses can be used to help you learn language – either a foreign language or to improve your vocabulary. Many memory centers encourage memorization and vocabulary as a way to learn a new language. They believe this will help you to start “thinking” in that language because you won’t have to keep looking up words and meanings. I want to give you a couple of tips to help you not only memorize faster, but retain it longer.

Proton Therapy More Non-Invasive For Brain Cancer


The brain is your command center. It sends signals to all parts of your body on how to work, how to understand what you see and hear, and stores your memories. So, if damage is done to the brain – through traumatic injury or cancer, the brain is not able to complete the commands. When a person has brain cancer there are several common treatments available: surgery, radiation, chemotherapy or a combination of both (Avoiding treatment is not recommended). Another alternative, that is not as common and non-invasive, is “Proton Therapy.”

We Can Slow Alzheimer’s Progress


Alzheimer’s is the leading cause of memory loss and dementia in people over 65, and affects over 300,000 people a year. It is devastating for not only the person who is suffering from it – for eventually they will not understand there is a problem, but takes control of everyone around them as they watch the progression from a viable person to a non-functioning one with a terminal illness.

Basic Speed Reading Exercises


As children we learned how to read a certain way, and over the years we have continued to use the same methods. In other words, even though we have substantially increased our vocabularies we have not advanced our reading methods beyond the second grade! We are all creatures of habit. When we are comfortable with something we don’t like to move outside our comfort zone unless we are forced to. With our lives moving along on the “information highway” we need to make room in our time to take it all in, and this is where Speed Reading comes in.

Want a bigger brain? Get up and move!


As people get older the area in the brain called the hippocampus begins to shrink. This shrinkage leads to the development of dementia. A Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences study found that those who exercise and push themselves away from the television and computer are not only in better physical shape, but their hippocampus also starts to grow – reversing the aging loss and increasing the brain size and memory function to add years to their life.

Are Binaural Beats Digital Drugs?


Binaural beats, quite simply, are audio sounds that are played at a slightly different tone for each ear (binaural means “both ears”). The two low frequencies synchronize in the brain to form a “beat.” You can produce beats by playing two different pure tones through loudspeakers, but the best way to get the effect is through stereo headphones.. The result is a calming effect that comes over you as you sink deeper into relaxation.
